Two exciting events this coming week. First, we’re shaking it up a bit and having a crew call on Monday (no crew call Saturday) at Neighbor to Neighbor. Looks like the weather is supposed to be warm and sunny and we’d like to get the beds prepped before it gets cold again. We’re also looking for volunteers to help with a garden event at CAARE in Durham on Saturday, Jan 30th. Pleases see below for more information.
VOLUNTEER TIME & EVENTS:
- Monday, Jan 25th from 2:00-5:30pm at Neighbor to Neighbor (N2N) in Raleigh. We will be re-doing the beds and prepping them for spring planting. Please come out after work or earlier if you can! Neighbor to Neighbor is located at 1200 S. Blount Street, Raleigh, 27601.
- Saturday, Jan 30th from 9am-12:30pm we’re hosting a youth service day at CAARE in Durham. We will be working with close to 100 kids to prepare beds for a garden at the CAARE organization. Starting with this event, the Food Shuttle will be helping participants in the CAARE programs to establish and maintain their garden. We’re looking for volunteers to help out this day and might need you on things other than the garden as well. If you are available please let Amanda know (NutritionCoord@foodshuttle.org). Please check out the CAARE website http://caareinc.org/ for more information on this great organization that IFFS works with.
- Though the work has slowed down, Amanda is still working with community members out in the gardens and would love your help during the week if you’re free. Please email Amanda (email above) if you want to join and for directions.
- Wednesdays & Fridays 4-5pm - Mayview
LOCAVORE LUNCH – Every Wednesday!
Every Wednesday at noon we are holding local agricultural discussion groups at Farmhouse Pizza, 3011 Hillsborough St. in Raleigh. We will be serving a pizza made using some (hopefully soon to be all) local ingredients from NCSU's Farmers' Market. Please RSVP to Steve (firstname.lastname@example.org) so he knows many pizzas to have made. If you can contribute, he is asking for a $5 donation... if you can't afford the cost we’ll gladly cover you in return for good conversation! A portion of the proceeds will go to the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle.
We are still in need of hand-tool donations. We gladly accept new and/or lightly used equipment. Thanks to all who have responded.
If you have not filled out a volunteer form or have a friend who is interested in helping out please email Janet at RGSJRS@aol.com.
Hope to see you all out there!
Katherine, Sun, & Amanda
